At Black Bellows, a huge part of our mission is forging ahead into the creative unknown. We are proud to support our local arts community with various pieces throughout our space from our creative community.
Helping lead the charge is our head art collaborator and contributor, Laura Kikauka. Representing the Meaford-via-Berlin art scene, her work encompasses many forms of art including photography, video, installation, text, costume creations and many more. Laura’s ‘excessive aesthetic’ is comparable to urban archeology and addresses issues of consumer culture, and the question of good versus bad taste. In our space you can find numerous pieces by Laura, including her Toy Tower, Beer Poetry paintings, and the Antler Snowmobile which adds colour, quirk, and psychedelic flair to our space.
In our main dining hall, a glorious supersized Bellow can be found hanging above our bar lighting up the room! This cool creation was done by Steven White, a mixed media visual artist who has been featured in multiple tv shows, movies, art shows/exhibits, music festivals and many more.
